Augustana College will present the children's play "Miss Nelson is Missing! The Musical" at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 9-10. The show is adapted from the best-selling children's book by Harry Allard and James Marshall.
The uncontrollable children of Room 207 are in for a surprise when Miss Nelson goes missing and is replaced by Viola Swamp, a no-nonsense substitute who assigns piles of homework! The students learn lessons of appreciation and respect, but will they ever get their beloved Miss Nelson back?
Ever since the publication of "Miss Nelson Is Missing!" 40 years ago, children have been reading about the legend of Miss Swamp, her alter ego in disguise.
Book, music and lyrics by Joan Cushing, and directed by Jackie McCall, Brunner Theatre outreach coordinator.
